Why not a buy a PC when you're looking at this kind of cost ?
#2
Why so cold? It's the cheapest price that I can find for it. An excellent PVR as well.
#3
I have the predecessor - a really great piece of kit, although a little expensive - but twinned with a LinkSys NSLU2 you can turn it into a networked PVR and transfer recordings to your PC for recording to DVD (or just put your PC next to it to transfer straight through the USB2)

Welcome to HUKD Dileas. Sorry for the cold reception!

because (regardless if it was garbage) if it was 10p and sold at lidl/aldi then it would get a hot rating

if a new bmw m3/merc amg63/audi rs4 sold for £20K, it would get cold votes despite the 30-40K saving....whereas a perodua kelisa selling for £1000 would get hot votes because its cheap, even tho its a piece of s**t


Well said. Alot of people seem to be doing this now. People have no idea what they actually voting on...

Dileas... Just be happy with the knowledge that the people who know what this is, and want one, can get it for a good price, regardless of whether its been voted hot or cold :-D

People probably voted cold because the Humax 9200T has been posted here for around £150 so this looks poor value in comparison. Good price for this model so I voted hot.

PCs don't have to be large these days and if you build your own they can be quieter than any PVR. My PC at 100% CPU/GPU load is much quieter than my Humax 9200T.

voted hot as i have the 5800 and its one of the best things i've ever bought!

i bought my parents the humax and hated it. the toppy is more user freindly and can be changed so much! it also does whatever i want it to do.
#9
I've had the original 160GB version for nearly 3 years & it's excellent for Freeview, think it holds around 100 hours.

Voted hot, for the same reason - this one has freeview Playback AND upscaling.
Alhough the 5800's latest firmware now contains freeview Playback but no upscaling.
#11
I suggest people read http://www.toppy.org.uk/ before they say how cold this device is, with the plugins, firmware and "extra's" available this device is a gem.

Hmmm, not sure I would buy one. But, the toppy's are great and this is undeniably a good price so voted hot.
#13
i have the 5800 too

best thing i ever bought as i was sick of the missus searching thru vhs tapes for something she had taped only to shout at me for taping over it lol and i paid £289 for it 3 yrs ago

does anyone know if this will play xvid thru the usb slot or is it just for tap / firmware updates?
#14
Sky+ anyone:?
#15
Excellent price, best yet for this new model. Personally I have the older 5800 model which I have put a 500gb hard drive into. Unless you want the little extras that this model has over the older one like HDMI etc I would recommend most people search out the older model at ever decreasing prices.
As with other users I cannot speak highly enough of this machine, can be customised to do all sorts, and www.toppy.org is the place to go too :thumbsup:

sky+ has a smaller harddrive and cant be "played" with as much as the toppy. you can also transfer recordings to your computer and convert to dvds! and its also FREE!!! :thumbsup:

But Sky+ works well, gives you more channels, (subject to subscription of course), and if you go the full hog with a Sky HD box, you get fantastic SD pictures via HDMI:thumbsup:

Cheaper too - subject to packages selected.

yeah i really miss all those extra shopping channels! :p LOL

the toppy works well too and the new one upscales via hdmi.

sky+ £149 then a minimum of £16 a month
skyHD £249 than a minimum of £26 a month
toppy 5810 £300 then FREE!! FOREVER!!
toppy 5800 around £150 then FREE!! FOREVER!!
#19
I've tried to heat it up a bit! It is a lot of money, but like others have said it is probably the best freeview pvr out there. I also think it's not really comparable to Sky+, there are lots of poeple out there who are quite happy with the channels available on Freeview and don't want to have to pay a subscription (myself include). And I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world who doesn't want to give any money to Rupert Murdoch!

Personally, I'd still go for the 5800. The 5810 is not worth the extra money, unless you particularly want HDMI, imho,
#21
If you want all the cra*p standard channels - fine.

But most people who buy HD TV transmissions want sport and movies - you ain't gonna get them with this.

This is a very expensive way of getting rubbish TV upscaled and IMHO, it ain't worth the cash.
